    Abstract

    This assessment by Hugh O’Shaughnessy, one of the few writers to devote a book to Paraguay, crystallises its situation as one of the least known countries in Latin America. This isolation is largely due to the fact that for much of the twentieth century, the country endured a repressive dictatorship, while in the twenty-first century its progression towards establishing a genuine democracy is far from complete. If Paraguay is known at all, it is because of its repression and corruption, as the 35-year dictatorship of General Alfredo Stroessner was the longest in Latin America.
